Delicious Fragrances: Mmm, you smell good!
Do you remember that episode of The O.C. where Summer Roberts was trying to rekindle her romance with Seth by telling him how good he smelled? Then he replied that she liked the smell of salami because he just ate a sub. Oh, Josh Schwartz, you kill me every time. My dear friend A has a very funny soliloquy about the use of birth control tampering with the natural effects of pheromones (the body’s natural chemical reaction, a signal for the opposite sex). She believes that one day you could wake up, look at your boyfriend and say, ‘you disgust me!’ because his scent threw you off. I digress.
Oh, sweet smells of Spring. There are so many wonderful fragrances to choose from, so many pretty bottles to sniff in the aisles of Sephora. I like to alternate from heavier and muskier (my current fragrance of choice is Vicks Vapo-Rub because I’m under the weather) to lighter and sweeter as the weather warms up.
Here are a few delicious scents to get the boys swooning:
- Burberry Brit – Brit is fun, impulsive, flirty. I think this is a subtle and delicate daytime fragrance that won’t overpower your senses. The fragrance has hints of Italian lime, almonds, amber, vanilla and tonka bean.
- Escada Ocean Lounge – Before I left for a vacation last year, I picked up Ocean Lounge as a nice destination fragrance that is both fruity (lychee, plum, pear) and floral (mimosa blossom, jasmine). Whoever does the graphic design for the packaging does a great job of communicating what the scent is all about – It’s a hottt summer day. You’re going to the beach in your new bikini, you’ve tied a chiffon scarf in your hair and you are about to get your tan on!
- Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy – Of course, this scent is seductive - after all, they did name it Sexy! This is definitely a going out perfume for the evenings spent dancing or having drinks on a candle-lit patio. Throw on your cutest ruffled mini and top it off with something warmer like a blend of tangerine, bergamot, rose pepper and sandalwood.
